According to Remington, the Model 25 was made from 1923 to 1935, with a total of 33,000 made. Yours is right about in the middle of the total numbers made, so I would expect it to be in the middle of the production years, or about 1929-ish. If you want a more exact date, look on the left side of the barrel for the production code, then look it up here

Unless you can find an original manual or a photocopy, you will probably have a hard time finding one.

You might be able to obtain a photocopy of the original factory manual for this model from Remington. Given it's age, I can't say for sure, but I do know that they offer them for many other of their obsolete/discontinued models so it may be worth a try. I got one from them for an old Nylon 66 off their website, free upon request.

Scorch was correct on the dates.

I have one just like that only in 25-20. I got my manuel just a couple years ago from remington. Check their web site.

The 25-20 isnt worth much for anything but small game, but its a heck of a lot of fun to shoot.

The Model 25s are great little guns. I love mine.

I was looking for the same info and ran across this thread. I know it's old, but according to the photos above with the code AK on the barrel I would interpret it to be a May '32 production date?

Rem 25/20

It's not the best deer rifle, that's for sure. When I get a rifle if it's not accurate
I get rid of it. If it stays in rack it has to shoot a deer. I shot one with mine at
40yds. head shot, couldn't have killed it deader with a 300 mag. I think I read
where a record buck was shot with 25/20, I don't know what model the rifle was.
For some reason it is hard to find 25/20 and 32/20 rifles with good bores. I have
bought several at auction that didn't make the grade. When I was a kid hunting
in WVa.mountains a lot of guys were still using them for deer. People didn't have
a whole rack of rifles or pocket full of money. I remember two guys hunting with
1 rifle, turn about, one carried rifle, one a walking stick.

Sweet rifle!!Wouldn't the old sheep herder love to have one of those in the wagon?

I have found that by simply going to ebay and typing what I am looking for in the box I am usually pleasantly surprised.

I did not search everything,but I quicly found a sight for a Rem 25 SRC,exploded drawings,and some repro literature,

Here is a manual for the Remington Model 25

On my dropbox.

It might not be here forever?

If not, just PM me.
